. >>> we begin this morning with debate prep. president obama and his republican rival mitt romney are both getting ready for their first face to face presidential debate in denver wednesday night. romney is holding a rally in the mile-high city today, while the president gears up in nevada. nbc's tracie potts joins us from washington with the latest. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. we get an interesting perspective on this from john mccain, he's debated both the president and mitt romney. he says we will see two very strong well-prepared debaters and he predicts few surprises. the president's behind closed doors in nevada for the next two days preparing to face mitt romney in denver wednesday. >> he's a good debater. i'm just okay. but what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing. >> reporter: both sides are downplaying expectations. a senior aide to the president says romney will be prepared, disciplined and aggressive. romney's debate partner calls the president a tough debater. >> barack obama is going to be formi
is probably going to do better. she says that president obama is one of the most talented political communicateors in modern history. this will be his eighth one-on-one presidential debate and romney's first. the president wil usehis ample rhetoricts attack romney. obama won the debates against john mccain if 2008 by double digits. it is not just the romney team that is trying to lower expectations. check out what obama's senior campaign advisor said recently. >> look, mitt romney, i think, has an advantage because he has been through 20 of these debates in the primaries over the last year. he even bragged that he was declared the winner in 16 of those debates. so i think in that sense having been through this much more recently than president obama, i think he starts with an advantage. >> want to bring in our jim accosta, who is covering the romney campaign in wayne, indiana. i'm tired of the false flattery really. do people really buy this? >> reporter: no, i don't think buys it, suzanne, but, you know, campaign aides are going to do that, and th'regoin to keep doing it as long as
's the issue with 2011 here? >> well, look, obama has said i'm going to tax rich people and implying he's not going to tax you. in fact, he passed tax increases on average income americans many many times during his presidency. there are 20 different taxes in obama care that we will all be paying. in addition to that, of course obama's new promise that he won't tax rich people, he's got a new term limit on it, 12 months. only next year, after that we could have a vat or other things. so if you are obama and you intend to allow the bush tax cuts to lapse, so there's a 500 billion dollars tax increase on low income people, middle income people, all americans, you want to talk about anything other than the tax increases that you have scheduled. i mean he's running up trillions of dollars of debt over the next deca decade, according to his budgets. the only way he pays for them since he's not cutting spending is to raise taxes on everyone. what do they want to do? oh gee what did romney pay in taxes four or five years ago? that has nothing to do with anything. we ought to be reducing taxes
and three administrations, the obama white house. a midder middle east diplomacy for msnbc and washington institute. dennis, let's talk about what netanyahu signaled he's doing today, demanding an ultimatum to iran on its nuclear program something the administration, the white house, has insisted they needambiguous. who is right here? >> imnot sure there is as wide a gap as you think. i believe what you're seeing is an agreement on the objective of making certain that iran cannot have nuclear weapons and then also i think agreeing that you have to come up with some kind of threshold to know when the objective of prevention has a meaning and it doesn't lose its content. i do think where the prime minister's coming from is, he wants to put, i think, a premium on having a clear definition of what's the point past which if iran crosses that particular line or tloesh hohreshold you'r longer in a position to prevent them. my guess he'll focus on why it's unacceptable for iran to have a nuclear weapons capability and he'll speak in effect to the world about coming together on not just having ope

economic growth and doesn't distort the tax system so much. david: when president obama says it is going to cost the middle class, that's because when it comes time to actually adding up the numbers and seeing if we get the same amount of tax revenue or less or more, you have to make some deductions, one of which is that this will stimulate the economy and, thus, more revenue will come in. the president is not making that assumption, correct? >> there is an assumption out there made by the tax policy center that basically says the only way you're going to pay for this is by hitting the middle class, by taking their deductions away. heritage comes back, another foundation, a conservative foundation, and says, no, they cooked the books on that whole thing. when you look at how all this is going to work out, it is still the decision of congress to figure out which deductions stay or go because romney has knotts detailed those things. part of -- has not detailed those things. maybe getting rid of those deductions don't pay for the entire tax cut, something called dynamic scoring. you assume
think obama is going to win and the democrats will win the senate, that is in the market already so the uncertainty you would normally expect going to presidential election unless something cataclysmic happens between now and the beginning of november, i don't think that will play a big part in the market. ashley: starting to get some real dire warnings. fed imac fedex stands out, how disturbing is that? tracy: it is interesting you bring up fedex. way back when, so goes gm, so goes the market. wal-mart was maybe the best indicator, fedex is the real indicator of what is going on in the u.s. economy. when it says the volumes are down and pricing is weak, i would go to school on that. ashley: thank you for joining us, appreciate it. >> thank you. tracy: state workers are making more than they are private company counterparts. you broke the story at noon, they are making more money than us. >> taxpayer watchdog citizens against government wages, state workers make 6% more in wages and benefits than employees performing the same job for a private company. every state government pays it
